BCCP’s statement on George Floyd’s death

The violent, ugly, and unnecessary circumstances that led to George Floyd’s death are unbearable. Like so many unarmed black people before him, George Floyd became the latest victim to police brutality and racism in this country. From George Floyd to Eric Garner to Breonna Taylor and countless others, this is part of a larger story of racism and unjustifiable violence against Black people in the U.S. They remind us of the urgent need to build a truly just society.

Join us in advocating for racial equality in our communities and institutions, as well as calling for justice reform in America. We know that these words may ring familiar, as many of us have been saying them over and over. Yet, here we are. In 2020, there is still so much work to be done. Stand with us – and the young people and communities with whom we partner – to promote justice, equity, and change. Racism has no place in our society and it certainly has no place here at BCCP. Let’s build this future together.
